    Yeah maybe this meme will get old after a while, but fuck it, its fun. Anyways, on to the news:

    Link

    Apparently someone in the Seattle area had a great idea to sell more coffee. They opened a drive through coffee shop where the barista's (what the fuck is up with this? barista? Who the fuck made up this word. They are counter help or servers, that's it. Wanna be something else, go back to school ya dipshits) are apparently wearing nothing by bikinis and pasties (God I love this country).

    Well this didn't sit well with some of the local citizenery (I.e. uptight, sexually repressed, insecure moms who know damned well they either married assholes and are trying to hang on to the last threads of their marriage or who aren't keeping their husbands happy at home). So they contacted the authorities (I.e. screaming, beating on their flat breasts, crying "Think of the childruuuuunnnn"). The authorities took action and closed the restaurant (I.e. it's always an election cycle).

    WTF...look if you are an uptight prude, if Cotton Mather is your hero and dont wanna see bewbies when you get your coffee, go to 4bucks for pete's sake! Then again, maybe these old hags were a front for 4bucks, who is really scared of losing even more money this year.

    Yep...when I lived near Dothan, Alabama the torch-bearing citizen mob was upset about a Hooters opening. The place was on a major road (makes sense, it's a business) and people used the example of driving your family around and your kids seeing a female in a skimpy outfit.

    For one, you couldn't see into the place anyway.
    For two, the beaches down on the Gulf Coast had women wearing way more skimpy outfits.

    But then this is America....you can't see a boob, but you can cut one off with a chainsaw. :salute:

    Having spent a few days in Dothan in 91, I can eaisly see that occurring and to be honest, twits getting up in arms over stuff like this warms the cockles of my heart. Fuck people, there are more important things to get worked up over.

    Damn how the hell did I forget to put that into the OP? :bang:

    God yes it was a good time to be living down here then. :bananana:

    I remember I was about to cross the bay to see my then GF (boy that psycho could fuck) and I saw some hitch hikers standing on the side of the interstate. So I picked em up (they were harmless looking, think pre basic training Anc, but with out the teabagging). Turns out the three lads were on spring break and had hitch hiked all the way from Pennsylvania to see some hot dog ladies in t-backs. Well being the kind soul that I am, and happening to know where the hottest t-back hotdog vendors were (look, I pay attention to those thing), I drove em across they bay, up to Clearwater, found one, let em out and hoped that they reached their little nirvana.

    Then I went to see my GF who asked why I was 45 minutes late getting to her. I told her. Based on her reaction I was reminded that she was one of those uptight, repressed, insecure ones. Aww fuck it, the sex was still worth it for another year or so.

    I'm sure I would have made better tips back in college if we'd been allowed to wear bikini tops. But some of those drinks are super hot, I would worry about getting burned!
    As for the term barista- it's a specialty. I think of it as bartending with no alcohol. They have barista competitions just like they have bartending competitions.

    Oh bullshit. That's like saying the person making the milk shakes at Johnny Rockets or Steak N Shake is a trained specialist. All they are is a counter money who has received an extra hour or two worth of training. They aint doing brain surgery.

    Well, your average "4Bucks" employee isn't - just some kid who needs a job. But any self-respecting real coffee joint would require at least a few months to a year of training before you are even allowed to serve a proper late'.

    I wasn't even allowed to so much as pour a glass of wine before I worked a year when I waited tables at an upscale joint...

    Anyway....damn...no titties!? What if I want milk with my coffee???

    You gotta be shitting me. What the hell else are they doing for that year? Damn folks shouldn't justify their inability to find a better paying job. Hell you like serving drinks, get a job in a real bar and make a shit load more money then. Being a waiter at a high class restaurant is completely different from being the kid slopping coffee around behind a counter / bar.were alike then

    This reminds me of when a Bad Ass Coffee company opened up in my hometown. Everyone raised a shit-storm about the name, I mean, seriously?! WTF?! Mary rode an ass....

    After a couple of months, they were shut down. Complete bull shit. Also, I thought their coffee was much better than Suckbucks.

    What I found amusing was that the women complaining weren't the usual older generation, but younger women who should actually have more of a sense of humor about things like that.

    Go figure.

    I wanted to be a chef - or so I thought.

    Even though I was a prep cook (I couldn't be called a "sous chef" without schooling)...well, in the biz, you have to pay your dues. When not making food, I washed dishes, mopped floors, bussed tables, and took shit. After time, if you can take it, you work your way up.

    People who don't - get NO respect.

    Also, some people are just snobs and get all offended if their wine isn't properly served. hey expect a "level of service"...blah, blah...sniff the cork, all that crap... But then again, that's why you got the $50 tips...(which was from, of course, people who dropped 100's on just wine. We actually didn't really make $$$ off the food...good as it was.)

    I also had a cool boss and got free dinners. Shrimp, duck, whatever wasn't TOO pricey.

    (Oh, and if they were not total assholes, you also got the rest of the unfinished bottle as thanks...and damn $150, fifty year old port is damn fine stuff...and makes washing pans a lot more fun...but so did the jays smoked in the alley behind the restaurant...)

    Bottom line - this WASN'T Applebees!

    Flair! More flair! LOL!

    Fear Not!

    There are still plenty of pasty/thong coffee stands in the area.

    Belfair is tiny little speck of a place out on the Olympic Peninsula, on this side of the Sound no one really gives a shit. There are two of those kind of drive throughs (thong/pasty, not exact company) within about 5 miles from here that I know of.





    And of course there are tons right outside post.

    I can't speak for coffee pullers though...maybe some do get good pay. But yea, the BIG tips were in the bars...my bartender friend made 100's in tips a weekend night...

    But it was a crowded classy bar, part of a big hotel & restaurant. Not some shit-kicker dive...

    I can dig that in an upscale restaurant. Now how does that apply to being a coffee jockey where you are basically working in a really stripped down Applebees. Hell I agree, a waiter in an upscale restaurant deserves a fancy pants name. But a coffee jockey? No way.

    Dude they take their coffee seriously out here.

    There is a reason all the big coffee chains come from Seattle. You gotta have something to wake you up and warm you up from this miserable weather. You'll find little drive through coffee shacks everywhere, and they make everything.

    It's a bit more complicated than just pulling some levers.

    Isn't a "pasty" a kind of British pie or donut or something!?

    So they wore pastries!? :shock:

    What? two honeybuns and a scone?

    :drool:
